Testing

ABUS strives to conduct more testing on our products than any other company, as part of our commitment to producing the highest quality locks on the market. We test:

  • Raw materials upon their arrival at our factories
  • Modified, changed and produced parts after treatment
  • Parts and materials for variances and quality standards
  • Functionality within and during production
  • Locks: during production for exact and proper variance
  • Key Cylinders: multiple times before, in and after production

We routinely test and break our locks to test for quality assurance by:

  • Freezing locks to -40°F to simulate the coldest weather and ice spray attacks
  • Re-enacting the toughest twisting, pulling, hammer, and cutting attacks
  • Testing for longevity and corrosion resistance by placing locks in highly corrosive atmospheres such as salt and steam water baths
  • Testing brackets on shaking and rattling machines for over 300 hours
  • Our locks are tested and certified by insurance institutes worldwide
